Christmas Sensory Table

We put the sand away for the month of December and created some new fun in our "sand" table. Beware--this is a messy table. We actually have to bring out the vacuum after each use. Plus, many of the children go home "white."

This table is a terrific smelling table made with flour, salt, and senses.

You need a:

5 lb bag of flour
1 container of salt
3 tbsp. ground allspice
3 tbsp. ground cinnamon
3 tbsp. ground cloves
3 tbsp. ground ginger

We then put some sifters, spoons, and scoopers in the mixture and allowed them to enjoy.

It smells really, really good, but it can make quite a mess.


  1. I bet this smells delicious! A feast for the senses. Keep the Dust Buster nearby!

  2. I teach preschoolers with special needs. I love this as a sensory center. It is very important to me to make sure I give my students as many opportunities to be introduced to new textures, smells and experiences. I will be using this in class very soon. It might be a little messy but very worth it.
    Thanks again
